SkyWatch Friday: Sunset Afterglow

The western sky shortly after sunset, Ormond Beach, Florida. August 4, 2009.

We celebrated Betsy’s birthday in 2009 at Ormond Beach, Florida.  We had a room that looked out over the ocean, but I captured this beautiful sky photo by going to the other side of the building and shooting the western sky shortly after sunset.  The landscape may not be as pretty as the ocean, but the sky couldn’t be any more glorious.
